I hate defending Comcast, because I'm only using them because they are
less impossible to deal with than Verizon (which you have to deal with
if you have Speakeasy and it breaks), not because they're actually
offering what I want to buy at a price I want to pay.  

But the TOS doesn't actually prohibit all servers.  It just says you
can't run a web server for commercial purposes. (I can't find this
right now, but I know I read it when I originally set up the dynamic
DNS.)  I take this to mean that I can have a dynamic DNS so that the
people I play music with can download PDF's directly from my machine,
but that I put the website I develop for a client somewhere else.

When I die and there's a memorial service, I want you to go to the
piano and play _The Man I Love_ in my key. If I don't come out on that
stage, then you'll know I'm gone.

in fact play _The Man I Love._)
